I am not good at following directions. I try. I want to do better; and yet, inevitably, my mind wanders and I move on to a new task before finishing what I started. I can’t follow multiple step verbal instructions; there is no telling where my brain connects then disconnects with the speaker. Some very important information can get lost in the process.
Well, it has happened again. You will have to forgive me as I am generally not aware of the situation until I am several miles down a road that is NOT the one I was supposed to be traveling. I tend to mindlessly amble along until I realize I am lost…again.
This is what I imagine my mind map looks like on any given day.
I start out with best of intentions, but once external stimuli begins influencing my thought process there is absolutely no guarantee I am going to end up anywhere close to my intended destination.
I have never been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, but, let’s just say there was a reason teachers preferred me sitting in the center front seat of their classroom.
I tell you all that to say, this morning I discovered I’ve had another V-8 moment (palm to forehead during a moment of sudden realization). I am struggling with writing, not because I’m no good at it. No, I am struggling because I was given a specific assignment and I took off on a different path.
I’m not sure how much of this to bore you with, so I am going to stop for today. Come back tomorrow, if you dare, to find out where I went wrong and what I plan on doing about it.
You Are Loved,
